Fat Pad Atrophy

Fat pad atrophy, also known as fat pad syndrome, refers to the thinning or loss of the protective fatty tissue cushion located beneath the heel or the ball of the foot. This fatty tissue, also called the plantar fat pad, serves as a natural shock absorber and provides cushioning between the bones of the foot and the ground. Aging, trauma, and weight loss are some factors that can lead to fat pad atrophy.
